[Dined in March 2015] Yardbird, South Beach definitely lives up to it’s reputation. My Uber driver told me that Yardbird could arguably be one of the best restaurants in the United States so I had pretty high expectations. I went for lunch and ordered the Blue Plate Special. It was the best friend chicken I’ve ever had. The meat was tender, melt-off-the-bone and perfectly seasoned. It came with a side of spiced watermelon that was sweet, savoury and refreshing and house-made buttermilk biscuits. They’re also well known for their southern style cocktails. I ordered the Souther Peach and my boyfriend ordered the Yardbird Old Fashioned. Yardbird was my most memorable meal in Miami and I am so glad they opened one in Las Vegas because it’s much closer to Vancouver and I was lucky enough to dine there again in June 2015.
